Monster Fest 2012 at Cinema Nova

This year, Halloween lasts for ten days and nights

This event has finished

Ask Godzilla. Ask the Hulk. Ask the Toxic Avenger. Monsters and mutations go hand in hand. Last year’s Fantastic Asia Festival has transformed, too, bursting free of its gooey cocoon as the new Monster Fest.

This broader scope means you can catch Noboru Iguchi’s splatter comedy Dead Sushi, Eoin Macken’s found-footager The Inside, all-star horror anthology The ABCs of Death and more. Special guests include the seemingly immortal Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and B-movie legend Larry Cohen of It’s Alive, God Told Me To, and The Stuff.

For pure high concept glee, though, see the modest Irish monster flick Grabbers. Every synopsis gives away its genius take on War of the Worlds – so try to go in blind and have a ball.
